Lee reportedly said that Chappelle should be more "sensitive."

Comedians really need to aim their comedy at the "real" audience, stupid, violent mother farkers that don't understand humor.

Just call Chapelle's humor an abortion, and then sue his ass in Texas for transporting it across state lines.

Didn't he already say it was because of gentrification or some shiat? And now he tells the friggin' NYP that it was because jokes triggered him? I'm sure if you could hear the interview you'd hear it's just him reading off of a piece of paper the Post wrote for him

Whatever the reason the guy's nuts

Literally I should add. This couldn't come across as more staged if he had a spotlight on him

Or maybe he really thinks that and he represents all LGBT complainers like Jussie Smollett represents all black people

I can laugh at a good dead baby joke without actually believing we should kill babies. Jokes are called jokes for a reason. They aren't intended to be taken literally.

If you believe everything Chappelle says, he's also knowingly/voluntarily hooked up with a trans woman.

"...I just titty f@#$ed her. Those titties are as real as any in LA"

Kinda hard to believe he is also transphobic.

Aside from claiming to be sexually involved with trans people, he also shared his whole story about his trans friend, that he gave a huge career opportunity to, and setup a trust fund for her kid.

Chappelle is more trans positive than most people outraged by him.

If this guy is so triggered by Chappelle's material, why did he buy a ticket?

This incident couldn't have been his first exposure to Chappelle's kind of humor. He's not really helping cast doubt on whether his attack was premeditated.

I don't think much of the NY Post but if you believe this was written for him by them:

I mean, I'm not being entirely serious. But he changed his story from it being about gentrification to now he was triggered by jokes. That's literally what he said. And he was rapping about being mad at Chapelle years ago

Tell me what makes more sense: The NYP is using this guy to make the LGBT community look bad, literally writing for him to say he was "triggered"? Or Dave Chappelle's trans friend killed herself months later over 9 replies to a tweet she put out? I'd say they're about equally likely so I'm just putting my dumb theory out into the world

In other news, the Carlin doc is up on HBO.  Makes some interesting points.  I forgot he'd gone broke later in life, which explains why he stayed innovating rather than just becoming another comfortable hack older comic.

Trik: Comedy focusing only one segment of society is mean spirited.
Comedy that takes shots at all segments of society is funny is the way it should be.


First and foremost every comedian's job is to be funny. Make jokes about trans people, make jokes about down syndrome people, make jokes about any down-on-their-luck segment of society you want. But if you do, make sure one of two things happens

1) It's funny

2) Failing #1 don't cry like a biatch when people don't laugh and/or complain

Dave failed both. And again, I'm not using my subjective "I didn't think it was funny" to say it wasn't funny. Defenders of his and the audience of the special didn't think so either

Well, you were given the Mark Twain Prize for comedy, no wait you were never given any prizes for comedy, and from what you've written, you appear to be comedy illiterate.

Let's be real - if The Chappelle Show aired for the first time in its original form today, the people on Fark who are complaining loudest about his transphobia would be complaining about his racism and probably his sexism.  The same goes for Killin' Them Softly.

Oh ffs, no one is saying Dave Chappelle is a bad comedian, least of all me. But his trans material is bad. Not offensive bad, but bad bad. And I've had people who defend him admit it by saying "Oh he's not trying to be funny in those parts", and the noticeable lack of laughter from the audience in those parts is another giveaway

It's like if Tom Brady threw a interception that lost a game and I pointed it out and you said "Well you've never played the game" . No shiat dummy, I can still point out when the person farks up

Unless Dave won the Twain prize and got acclaim from other comedians strictly for his shiatty trans material it's a stupid thing to bring up. The only people he wins praise from for that shiat are chuds on the internet who want to be able to laugh at that kind of thing again without a guilty conscience

The bigger question is why did he stab his roommate at that housing facility? It's entirely possible this guy doesn't know himself why he lashes out, and he's working just as hard as everyone else to come up with reasons afterwards.

If you think he titty farked someone because he told a joke in the first person, I can understand why you dislike his comedy.

The people that I know personally who expressed offense at his jokes in real life are coworkers of mine. A small percentage of whom are openly trans. I don't know of any rigorous studies, but whatever. Putting a trans person as his opening act, mentoring, becoming friends with, and starting a trust fund for a trans person's kid are...

1.) Objectively more good for the trans community than the people I personally know who expressed offense have done for the trans community.

2.) Absolutely not the actions of a person who dislikes trans people.

It seems to me that YOU are the problem, and that's probably why you were arrested and now you're going to be in prison.
